Moving vehicles through quickly and efficiently is one of the most important considerations for any car wash owner, perhaps second only to providing a quality car wash. 

When your customer drives past your car wash and sees a line they deem to be too long, they will keep driving in the hopes of finding one with a shorter line. If you’re currently dreaming of more customers and higher revenues, it might be time to increase vehicle throughput with a tunnel system car wash.


Lower Wait Times = Higher Revenues

Tunnel car wash systems can achieve a significantly higher car per hour than in-bay automatics. With a typical in-bay automatic system, you are looking at roughly 10-15 cars per hour. Contrast that with a tunnel system, which at the low end is 40-50 cars per hour with a drive through or mini tunnel, and at the high end, up to 180 for systems over 100 feet!

Tunnel car wash systems are highly customizable and have many size options, so you can be sure to find one that fits your unique needs.


Drive Through Tunnel System

These systems provide an express wash, perfect for fleet wash applications such as car rental companies or auto dealerships. Expect to get up to 55 cars per hour through these workhorses.

Mini Tunnel System

Mini tunnel systems pack a lot of punch in a compact package. Mini tunnels provide your customers with the options they are looking for, like undercarriage wash, wax application, spot free rinse, etc. All while running through up to 50-60 cars per hour.

Larger Tunnel Systems

If space constraints aren’t an issue, a larger tunnel system could be a perfect solution. Depending on the size, these powerhouses can run through a whopping 75-180 cars per hour! These systems allow for lots of customization and add ons, including touch free options.
